This is new, but ex shelf stock so is not sealed and may have slight wear and tear on the packaging.

The world's leading music game meets the greatest band in history. The Beatles: Rock Band gives fans what they've been waiting for: a chance to experience the Beatles' legendary story from the inside. You won't just watch and listen as The Beatles make rock history, create landmark records and conquer the world-for the first time, you'll be part of the band. The Beatles software is compatible with Rock Band and Guitar Hero instruments as well as third party microphones including SingStar and Lips.

The Game

The acclaimed Rock Band elements of interactive play and full-band capacity are here, but with brand-new additions. This will be the first music game to offer harmonies, challenging you to recreate The Beatles’ vocal blend. There are custom-built models of the instruments that the helped to make iconic; audio straight from the masters; and graphics that take you on a magical tour through the key moments in Beatles history. Produced with the full cooperation of The Beatles and Apple Corps, the game is packed with fab extras. Master the songs to hear rare audio and view unseen photos from the archive.
